Shoe Track

Definition(s)


Shoe track

The space inside the casing between the float/guide shoe and the landing/float collar. NOTE This space provides a volume that helps prevent over displacement of the primary cement job; thus, the shoe track is typically filled with cement or a cement-mud combination due to wiper plug mud film displacement.
